--False Hope and Tainted Tears—

False hope

It's what I'm given when I shyly stare

Into those deeply guarded eyes.

Hatred and sorrow,

Surprisingly born from love.

It's what eats me alive.

Upon the chance of

Being lost in your heart.

However odd it would seem.

Each pool of tears

Formed at the base of my soul.

Those tears expel a world.

In which we could be together.

Yes, those tears,

Every time they are tainted

By the ground at our feet.
